Help. I need advice on the use of the fishing NET.

I want to get beneath the surf, into the realm of fish.

I am an ichthyologist who curates the collections of the National Museums of Scotland, Edinburgh 
and I have just got access to the super-highway') I need guidance. How do I join your fish 
discussion group, how do I best use the NET to capture fishy information, what resources can I 
access via the net, how do I find out what is available, how do I trawl the NET?  I would  be 
grateful for any help or guidance. 

My particular research interest is in midwater fishes of deep ocean, and I work particularly on 
the fauna of the N. E. Atlantic and Indian Ocean, although my interests extend to fish in 

As curator of the National Museum's collections I am happy to answer enquiries about our 
collections and research facilities.
